Question about 1998 Honda VF 750 C Magna
my motorcycle was left for about 4 months with the fuel left in it. i drained all the bad fuel out of the system. i filled it up with supreme gasoline. i then attempted to start the bike. it will run with the choke on but will shut off as soon as you turn the choke off. the bike warms up but never idles up with the choke on. i removed the carbs and checked the floats and jets. i cleaned all of them (there really was no build up) and i also replaced the spark plugs. when i installed the carbs i still have the same problem. i did not completly dis-assemble the carbs i only removed the float and jet covers. any info on this would be greatly appreciated.
Dear honda 750 your problem is a pluged main jet you must completley disasseble the carbs and give them a good cleaning with carb cleaner and comp air visually check to make sure you can see light through the jets after cleaning. your choke system by passes the jets that is why it runs on the choke setting only. hope this helps jim

This is an article I found on gas. I have had this happen to me and if the gas goes bad in lawn mowers I'm sure the same thing will happen in cars just not as common due to cars usually don't sit around.
I would try putting a gas stabilizer in and run that tank of gas till almost empty then fill it and see if the problem is still there.
Also take a look under the hood and look at the wires and vacuum hoses animals seems to like chewing on them some times.
If none of this works repost but let us know if the battery was dead at any time and if the check engine come on while the engine is running.
